Dr. Gartshteyn began her medical career by working at a hospital as a generalist physician. This position appealed to her interest in treating diseases that affect the whole body and whole system. Rheumatology has always interested her since not much is known of this branch of medicine. Dr. Gartshteyn decided to pursue the exciting research of this field in order to learn more and improve upon her medical skills.
Upon completing her fellowship, Dr. Gartshteyn received 2 grant awards for her research on the link to cardiovascular disease, lupus, and inflammation. She was also nominated by her program for Fellow of the Year by the RA Society. She looks forward to joining the expert team at CORE Medical & Wellness where she will be able to shape the role of integrating new advances in science and investigational work.
Born in the Ukraine, Dr. Gartshteyn immigrated to New York where she met her husband. She speaks English, Russian, as well as a little bit of Spanish. Although she eventually settled in New Jersey. Dr. Gartshteyn still considers herself a New Yorker!
Being active and enjoying nature are important to Dr. Gartshteyn. She can be found hiking, climbing, canoeing, kayaking, and enjoying the outdoors with her children in her spare time. Dr. Gartshteyn finds her motivation in connecting with nature and spending time with her family, especially watching her children grow up. Her parents have always been a source of inspiration as well, especially her father’s belief in doing something well without seeking attention or anything in return.
Dr. Gartshteyn is also motivated every day by working the medical field, as she finds it inspiring to be able to help patients. She looks forward to seeing patients improve their health and regain function, which is part of the reason why she entered into this line of work. Seeing patients benefit from medicine gives her a second wind to continue working in rheumatology.
